Think like an artist, don't act like one
This book presents 75 ways to look at art and 75 life lessons you can learn from it. From the works of ancient Egypt and Greece to today's abstract and conceptual pieces, by way of Leonardo, Dürer and Rembrandt, Picasso, Warhol and Ai Weiwei, art inspires us to take a fresh look at the fundamental questions we face. Questions about success, about love,
about work, about friendship and about life and death.
Think Like an Artist, Don't Act Like One is a lively introduction to art history as it resonates in your own daily life. And an exhortation to look at art in your personal way.
